Daniele Di Iorio was born in Formia, Italy on 10th of July 1990. He studied Chemistry at “Sapienza” University of Rome where he gained his Bachelor’s degree in January 2013, presenting a thesis about “Study of interaction between streptavidin and magnetite nanoparticles functionalized with biotin” under the supervision of Prof. Mario Barteri. In January 2015 he got the Master’s degree (summa cum laude) in the same University with a thesis entitled “Specific interaction between superparamagnetic nanoparticles activated by lectin II and Gram positive bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus)” working again under the supervision of Prof. Mario Barteri.
Since June 2015 he works as a PhD student in the Molecular Nanofabrication group under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ir. Jurriaan Huskens. The aim of his project is to study multivalency at interfaces in biological systems exploiting the functionalization of inorganic surfaces.
